Vyacheslav TikhonovIn the middle of June, Nordic Maritime, working with SCF of Russia, will complete a US$23.5m contract for providing 3D maritime seismic data acquisition and processing service off the coast of Andhra Pradesh, India for Cairn India.

This contract has seen Nordic Maritime collaborate with SCF Geo of Russia using that group’s ‘state of the art’ seismic survey vessel Vyacheslav Tikhonov. The vessel has surveyed approx 1,000 sq km of ocean bed and included the acquisition of gravity and magnetic data alongside the seismic data near Nizamapatnam Bay.

Built in 2011 and operated by SCF Geo (based in St Petersburg) the design of the Vyacheslav Tikhonov, based on the X-bow design from Norway gives the vessel a very modern and dramatic look.
